I guess, this would be very late to write about the Workflows configuration by this time. Even, I created the workflows two years back. But, after sometime, when I try to configure in another server, I found it a bit difficult. Then, as usual, thought of having it handy.

The ultimate objective of this article is, from the designer, when I try to create a Workflow, on the Platform Type, I could not find the SharePoint 2013 workflow by default. Have a look on the below screen shot.

We want SharePoint 2013 Workflow should also be displayed on the dropdown. Now, the resolution for this can be a step by step procedure.

1. We need to install the web Platform Installer first. Download link - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj193525.asp

2. Follow the Installation Link as shown below.

12. Now go back to the designer and we will be able to see the Platform Type as SharePoint 2013 Workflow.
